Dr. Roger Girard is a rich scientist conducting experiments on head transplantation. His caretaker has a son, Danny, who, although fully grown, has the mind of child. One day an escaped psycho-killer invades Girard's home, killing Danny's father before being gunned down himself. With the maniac dying and Danny deeply unsettled by his father's death, Dr. Girard decides to take the final step and transplant the killer's head onto Danny's body. Of course, things go horribly wrong and the two-headed creature escapes to terrorize the countryside. Written by Jeremy Lunt <>

Casey Kasem was a big name in radio, and during the 60's was one of the top talents on 1110 KRLA on Los Angeles airwaves. A fellow DJ was the very popular Dave Hull. The "Hullabalooer" (as he was known) can be heard in this movie providing the voice for a radio announcement. See more »

The Incredible 2-Headed Transplant (1971) **
5 September 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I always wish I could have more fun with this than I actually do. Is there such a thing as a cheapo Grade-Z flick being a "missed opportunity"? It's got so many potentially good-time cheese ingredients: Pat Priest (The Munsters), Bruce Dern, Albert Cole, John Bloom and Casey Kasem (!). But there's just something about it that's a lost opportunity as side-splitting exploitation hijinks, and it's never as much of a good time as its companion piece, THE THING WITH TWO HEADS.

Things seem kind of slow-paced for such an offbeat idea, and the good stuff doesn't really get started till halfway through the film. I get the feeling that Bruce Dern was completely devastated by being in this thing as he remains completely lethargic and practically whispers all of his lines throughout without any hint of conviction whatsoever. Then again, that's usually just Bruce Dern. Either way, his is a God-awful performance. I do like one really awesome shot where the lumbering two-headed creature is making its way across a misty lake at night, en route to surprising a couple necking in their car. Albert Cole is properly sadistic as the "bad head" while John Bloom (who was the Frankenstein Monster in "Dracula vs. Frankenstein") manages to pull of his "sympathetic retarded man" quite well. ** out of ****
